“A little gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

stumbled across Mythos one night when we where bored of all the same places to eat running down the beach road
service was relaxed just as most places in Crete so no problem there and it lead to me and my girlfriend having an even nicer relaxed meal
another good point was that it was much busier than anywhere else we had seen so i guess that speaks for itself
the starters where nice but the real star of the show was the grilled fish platter which was wonderful,the seabass was fantastic but the calamari was out of this world
the staff where great also and the free desert and ouzo was a fantastic touch as well

made a much welcome change to the rest of the places trying to drag you in as you walked past

“Great Place - worth finding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Tough place to find especially if you are on the outskirts of Chersonissos - otherwise take the address and get a taxi.

The friendly family welcome is wonderful, especially for the footsore people searching for the place, great menu with lots of choice and advice from the waiting staff.

We just had to go back twice, first time had the sharing meat platter (excellent value at 20Euros) and secondly the pork shank and the lamb kleftiko (stunning), both times the service, food and ambiance was second to none.

Finished off with a great free desert and little carafe of ouzo? with lemon water - nice touch to end a great meal.

“July”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Im so sorry its taken this long to leave a review we ate there in July. I am in the trade and therefore can be quite critical. fine dining it is not but it is authentic Greek cooking in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere it certainly is. Once we discovered it after day 2 we went back 6 times. Some would say boring, but when we went to other places the quality of everything was just not there, you are just another tourist with a euro to spend. Mythos is well worth a visit. Even the groups of lads who dined there before partying were respectful. I think you would be disappointed if you missed out.

“great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Back again this year and the food and service are still excellant I would recomend the the restaurant to anyone, we eat here every year and look on Mano and Ghanni as friends. The only thing missing was Manos's father who normally meets and greats you at the entrance everybody has to retire sometime but I will miss him.

“Beautiful family run Taverna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Lovely little Taverna just off the main strip. Excellent menu with lots of choice and traditional Greek food. Very pleasant and friendly owners and great value for money. We loved it so much we ate here every night.
